Sport is my major passion. I am active myself - I try go jogging once or twice a week and have just taken up tennis again. I also like to watch sport on the TV. In this respect, I think I am living in the right country as many of the people here in the Czech Republic are as enthusiastic about sport as I am. And like me, they like to drink a beer afterwards… (laughs)
What else characterizes me? Having three kids, I am a morning person and, like many Dutch people, I also have a sarcastic sense of humor. Many of my colleagues here may still be a little unfamiliar with this, but I am working on making them love it (laughs). Another part of my personality is the fact that I don't take things too seriously - especially myself.
As a manger I like to keep things pragmatic and simple because I think our business is complicated enough as it is… For me, collaboration is the key to success. And it takes mutual trust to optimize this. In my position as a manager, I therefore always endeavor to establish and nurture this trust in my teams. I am also someone who is always looking ahead, and not so much back, both in my personal life and in business.
